RADIANCE: The Experience of Light - Dorothy Fadiman, Michael Wiese

At a time when inter-cultural understanding is increasingly fragile,
RADIANCE affirms the presence of a universally shared experience.
Striking natural images, unusual special effects, and poetic narration
are woven together with a wide range of musical selections to develop
an evocative documentary on light, from the physical to the metaphysical.

Through religion, philosophy, art, and architecture, RADIANCE documents
the story of light as a universal symbol of life to people from many cultures.
Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Judaism, plus images from
Pagan rituals and ancient Egypt are intricately related. This inspiring film
invites the viewer to see how images of light continue through ancient
cultures into the present, connecting the visions and values
of people around the world.
